There’s a monster in my bed
She lives right where I lay my head
She holds me here with endless charms
Keeps me from rising to the alarm
She wraps me in a warm embrace
Nuzzles my neck with her sweet face
Reaches out to tap the “Snooze”
Falls back to sleep, no time to lose.
“Five minutes more” is her refrain
So in our bed I must remain
Wrapped in arms and legs and love
She sighs and coos, just like a dove
“Would we could just here reside
In bed, alone, our cares outside.
No cars, no jobs, no morning rush
Just you and I and day’s first blush.”
Eyes closed I murmur “I agree.
There’s nowhere else I’d rather be,
Than safe ensconced within your arms.”
Then sounds the thrice damned snooze alarm.
I try to rise, the monster grips
Arms round my chest, legs o’er my hips
Held tightly down, I try to stir
She cuddles closer, then whispers, “Grrrrr!”
I hold her close to still her growl
I stay in bed so she’ll not howl.
As she starts to lightly snore
I tap the “Snooze”; Nine minute more.
Its nice to have a cuddle monster
She really is no beast
I close my eyes and snuggle ‘gainst her
And do not wish to be released.
